Electrical and Electronic Engineering

This is for you if... you want to study areas such as power generation and transmission, electrical machines and actuators, power electronics, programmable electronics and control systems. The MEng is a direct route to Chartered Engineer status. Professional engineers have a high degree of specialist knowledge but increasingly they use a broad approach to problem solving across a range of engineering disciplines. This is coupled with an awareness of environmental, social, legal, economic and regulatory aspects of the problem at hand. Whether you study for the BEng or the MEng, your Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree will combine a multidisciplinary approach to design with specific skills in electronics and power engineering, communications, control and computer programming. Electrical and Electronic Engineering is one of the fastest growing branches of engineering, incorporating a whole spectrum of activities and specialisations. The generation, transmission, distribution and utilisation of electrical energy is a huge field, including developments in renewable energy systems such as geothermal, wave, solar, tidal and wind power. Electrical and Electronic Engineering also covers software engineering, microprocessors and embedded microcontrollers, and control systems for manufacturing, aerospace, chemical processes and transportation. Building on a broad foundation of engineering studies in Year 1, you will develop specific expertise and skills in electrical engineering, communications, semiconductors, electrical machines and microprocessor programming.
